Atrium Gallery Exhibitions
Rotating exhibits of contemporary art have been presented in
the Airport's Atrium Gallery since 1997. Over that period passengers have enjoyed
exhibits covering a wide range of artistic styles and subject matters by local,
national and international artists. Interested artists are invited to submit their
work for consideration at any time however exhibits are scheduled a year in advance.
Currently this is the only opportunity for visual artists with the Airport Art Program.
The Atrium Gallery is located in the heart of the Airport's Main Terminal and consists
of four large columns that are each surrounded by four 4' by 8' panels. One panel
is reserved for an artist statement leaving fifteen panels for hanging artwork.
Exhibits run approximately six to eight weeks with the artist being responsible
for delivering their work ready to install at 10 p.m. on the designated night. Artists
receive a $500 honorarium to help cover the expense of developing and delivering
the work. A full color postcard is created by the Art Program to promote the exhibit.
The criteria used to make the selections include the quality of work, how it is
presented, scale and theme. Larger work seems to read better throughout the space
but many exhibits have been successful using multiple works (two per panel side).
To submit a proposal, please send us a packet or e-mail with images of the art you
wish to display. Slides, prints, a disc with JPEGs or referral to a Web site showing
your work are all acceptable formats for the images. In your submission, also include
your full contact information, a resume or a curriculum vitae, and a brief statement
about your work. In the statement, be sure to discuss the size of the art and how it
should be presented. We will notify you of your selection status after we review the
materials. If you would like your packet returned, please include an appropriately
sized self-addressed stamped envelope. Call 404-382-2250 with questions.
